I'm afraid i don't understand what you are writing.

On your page i see info about DDE and no scripts . I'm using chrome.

But i'm not looking for DDE or DDE libraries. Simply the code on how to call
an external dll from NinjaTrader 7.

Lets say i have an dll that does one thing adding two numbers. MyCalc.dll

The function is AdUp(nbrfirst as double, nbrSecond as double) as double

How can i use the function from the dll in ninjatrader.

It could be you answered my question perfectly but i'm not able to see how?!?

I figured out how to import an old .dll from another platform.

I copied the .dll directly into the \program files\NT folder - haven't tried the MyDocs\Custom location.

1) You may have to add any relevant declarations in the "Using declarations" region if you need some functions not included by default. In my case I needed to add "using System.Runtime.InteropServices;"
2) Under the "public class" region, you will have to add the .dll, and its parameters:

public class MyIndicator : Indicator
public static extern double MyX_SetDouble(double param1, double param2);

#region Variables
.... your variables, etc

The rest of your stuff...


Hope this helps.
